How to make a seesaw knot paracord lanyard

Today’s Paracord Projects, How to make a seesaw knot paracord lanyard. A very quick and simple project using two colors of paracord.

This video is from WeekendGunners on YouTube. The video instruction is superb as well as the clear and easy to follow step by step instructions.

The process starts with a hitch knot. You can start off by folding one of the paracord in half (roughly 4 ft long), inserting the folded part inside the key ring and letting the other end (2 strands) pass inside the loop that the folded part created and then pull it tightly.

The steps might be confusing at first, just keep in mind that you will always start with the highest or top most strand then pull tightly after every knot. After a doing the first few knots, it will be relatively easy to finish the rest.

You can finish this lanyard off by doing another knot or by just burning the ends neatly. This knot can also be used to create dog leashes or bracelets.



If you don’t have a paracord yet, you can visit theĀ Paracord Supplies section and you can purchase your paracords from there.
